Primary & Special Schools

Campaign now closed for 2022

Watch the video

Schools have a critical role to play in getting children eating vegetables – through learning, play and school food. Our school’s programme has been designed by top educators, public health professionals, school caterers and our creative team, in line with the curriculum and government healthy-eating guidelines. The campaign is finished for 2022 – over 1 million children in 3,845 primary and special schools took part. We’ll be back in 2023.

Caterers’ Challenge

We are challenging school catering teams to lay on amazing spreads of vegetable tasters for each week of Eat Them to Defeat Them. These spreads make the veg the hero of lunch and create a perfect opportunity for kids to give them a taste. We love to see creative displays, the kids getting involved and tempting, healthy vegetable treats. We will be shouting about the best and handing out a few cash prizes and certificates to the best school teams.

We’ve got assemblies, posters, lesson plans, worksheet, recipes, growing projects – kindly donated by our friends and supporters at Oxford University Press, Hampshire County Council, TastEd and Washingborough Academy. If you have great vegetable resources that we can take to a wider audience please get in touch.
